Adults at CCBNY
Sunday Short Series
We are all at different stages of our spiritual pilgrimage. The Adult programs at Christ Church Bronxville are designed to provide fruitful opportunities for reflection, fellowship, education and spiritual growth to help us along the way. It is our hope and our belief that participating in these programs will enrich our lives, soothe our souls and bring great joy.
Periodically throughout the year, we will offer "short series" of Adult Formation classes. They are between three and six weeks at a time on a variety of topics, with past topics including Interfaith poetry to Corinthians to sacramental "Ask me Anythings" with Father Bird. Upcoming Short Series will be announced in church and in the weekly email.
Young Adults Fellowship Group
Elis Lui and Kira Parks are thrilled that this group continues to expand! A fun and diverse group, we are single and married young adults, with and without children, from Westchester and NYC. We meet twice a month to serve our community together, study scripture together, and simply spend time together. Please bring any ideas for outreach, social and worship events. Feel free to bring friends. We can’t wait to see you!
Email Elis at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to our mailing list!
"Fellowship & Service” characterize the activities of the Christ Church Men’s Group. The club kicked off its inaugural meeting in early 2013 as part of CCBNY’s “better together” theme. Members meet over dinner at 7:30pm on the second Monday of every month and come from all walks of life – young, old, gay, straight, churchy, not so churchy, white, black and Indian. The venue is usually the Tap House in Tuckahoe (right by the train station).
In addition to gaining a greater appreciation for each other at our monthly meetings, club members have planned and executed four service projects this year – two Midnight Runs, a softball game with the special kids at Andrus Children’s Center and a Harvest Supper to benefit a local non-profit.

The group consists of representatives from a wide range of disciplines including executives, doctors, administrators, lawyers, bankers, educators and even an architect! Their children range in age from infancy to college age. The group typically meets on the first Wednesday or Thursday of every month from September through June. The meetings vary from purely social, usually held at the home of one of the members or at a local restaurant, to spiritual, held at the Church and led by members of the clergy or special guests.

LGBTQ & Friends
We are a group of parishioners and non-parishioners, gay and straight, who in 2011 began gathering in homes for monthly festive potluck dinners. In addition to these casual social events, we strive to be an active part of our parish by hosting events that raise awareness about LGBT issues, and we aim to reach out to others who identify as LGBT beyond our church community. All are always welcome and encouraged to join us.
Please contact Marcie Mulé and Jeanine Dooley for more information.
Center for Spiritual Growth
The Christ Church Center for Spiritual Growth provides opportunities for prayer, study, journaling and spiritual direction through short courses, ongoing small groups, retreats and one-on-one conversation. Its aim is to be a resource to the parish and wider community by providing ways of deepening the spiritual life of individuals and groups and strengthening the connection between prayer and service.
For information about the program, please contact Hondi Brasco.
Women's Spirituality Group
Every Thursday morning the Women’s Spirituality Group gathers in the Conference Room on an informal basis for discussion, prayer and spiritual growth. Meetings are organized around biblical texts and themes, as well as books of particular interest. These meetings provide an opportunity for women to come together to listen, share ideas and discern God’s presence in our lives.
For more information, contact Ruth Singleton.
The Women’s Guild is a group of women over the age of 60 who meet the second Monday of each month from September through June to discern ways we might contribute to the well-being of both our parish family and the community that surrounds us. As we go through this process of looking for projects and passions to which we can apply our talents, we spend time together exchanging writings, enjoying meals, seeing films, attending lectures, museums and plays, going on outings and generally getting to know each other more deeply while having fun together.
